1858 until 1960, john f. kennedy versus richard nixon, debates didn't play that big a role in presidential campaigns. there were no presidential debates. but you did have in primaries occasionally, squareoffs going on. interesting to even think about stats from minnesota rarely run for president -- stacken ran for president every four years. kennedy/nixon was the game changer in debate history. people that listened to it thought nixon won on radio but on television, john f. kennedy won. nobody was that happy with the debates. we had no debates in '64 '68 '72. came back in 1976 when jimmy carter ended up doing well because of gerald ford's famous gaffe. that's the big question. can you become gaffe-free? everybody is going to be looking wednesday night to see if there was a mistake made by either person. it puts a lot of pressure on the candidates. >> jennifer: you mention nixon and kennedy and those who saw the debate felt like kennedy won. what do you think is more important? what the candidates say or how they say it? >> i think it's how they say it. to be honest with you ta

off of (vo) john fugelsang sees what happens. i like mitt romney but i'm sorry. they guy has flipped more than a crack house mattress. (vo) so we gave him a >> thank you. >> romney: but the idea that you get a break for shipping jobs overseas is simply not the case. >> jennifer: okay, this lie really burns me because as head of bain capital, mitt romney likely financially benefitted from moving jobs overseas to china. so let's debunk this fallacy of the night. we have a june letter to lawmakers from the congressional joint committee on taxation. it says... in other words firms that move their factories overseas can deduct the moving expenses. you pay for that. seems like something that mitt romney's savvy accountant would be well aware of. now, there is no doubt about it. big money can get very ugly and not just when it comes to outsourcing. greg palace is an investigative reporter specializing in voter suppression. he's out with a new book "billionaires and bailout bandits, how to steal the election in nine easy steps." greg welcome inside "the war room." >> glad to be with you gove
